According to our source, the deceased was inside one of the three buses set on fire by a mob.

Two of the vehicles, Hummer Buses from the Libra transport company, were on their way from Umuahia, Abia State capital, when they came across a gang of hoodlums suspected to be members.
They allegedly shot at the tyres, forcing the bus to come to a halt.

The bus passengers scurried to safety, while one of the drivers was shot in the hip, according to reports.

The passengers were unable to flee before the bus caught fire.
Our correspondent also learned that heavy gunfire erupted near Banana junction on the Orlu-Owerri road, as gunmen engaged security agents in a shootout.

When our correspondent tried to contact CSP Mike Abattam, the Police Public Relations Officer, he did not pick up the phone.
